Album Notes
This songwriters music is of love gained, love lost, growing up and growing old. He can take you on a journey that makes you think, smile and at times want to cry. These lyrics and melodies are of a musical journey reflecting emotions of everyday life.

The Ohio-born, Massachusetts resident has steadily been gaining critical acclaim throughout New England songwriting circles, and has even earned several awards for his finely tuned craft. Employing a voice that resembles Neil Young's with the edges rounded-off, Williams is far more than simply a folk singer. His singer-songwriter style is circuitously culled from various influences, though he does not rely too heavily on any one technique. On some tracks, Williams and his studio compatriots form tightly knit harmonies reminiscent of Peter Paul & Mary. And yet on others, the vocal and backing arrangements resemble a Blood-On-The-Tracks-era Dylan. That aside, Chuck Williams is by no means a retro-act. The recordings are fresh sounding and uniquely his own.

There seems to be a proud and strong tradition of folk music speaking truth to power. On the song “On The Line,” Chuck Williams does just that, while broaching the topic of warfare, and more specifically the young fighting the wars of the old. This politically savy message has garnered recognition in that "On the Line" has been ranked amongst the Top 10 Songs of the Times in 2007 on Neil Young's Website and receivred Honorable Mention in the PeaceDriven Music Awards.

A new favorite!
This music does exactly what music is supposed to do... It reaches emotion in the listener. It gives words to feelings we all share and provokes thought long after the CD is over. His style is unique yet feels familiar. One of my favorites in my collection!

Musical Tapestries that convey the spirit of an America that existed in days gon
...Americana, but not in the Old Glory sense of the word, but Musical Tapestries that convey the spirit of an America that existed in days gone by. It has some of the same energies of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, CSN and definitely Neil Young, while not sounding like any of them. There is something here that a lot of people are going to latch on to, especially in these trying times.
